Case Study 1
Mrs Walker is a 72 year old lady who lives alone and until recently was in her own home with a care
package.
Mrs Walker has a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s dementia (4 months) and has deteriorated both physically and
mentally over the last 8 weeks, she habitually paces up and down even though she has very poor balance
and appears very pale and tired.
Mrs Walker has been deemed to have ‘lost capacity’ by her Psychogeriatrican and the Enduring Power of
Attorney has been enacted.
Mrs Walker’s family and the health team caring for her have all agreed that she is a danger to herself and
others, a decision has been made to place her in a residential facility within a secure environment.
Mrs Walker has had to be physically escorted into the residential facility and is very distressed.
Mrs Walker has a severe contracture of her right hand caused by burns received in her kitchen 11 months
ago, her noncompliance with physiotherapy have rendered that hand useless.
Mrs Walker weighed 62kgs a year ago, today she weighs 34.5kgs. Her family advise you that she is
refusing to eat and that they often find Mrs Walkers dentures in bizarre places around the house, they tell
you that Mrs Walker is still drinking plenty.
1a) You are the nurse receiving Mrs Walker and as such, will need to complete a health assessment.
Discuss the primary and secondary sources that you might access to retrieve information about Mrs
Walkers past medical history. (50 words)
Primary sources of information for Mrs. Walkers past medical history would include data collected
personally by the nurse, which can be further classified as subjective or objective. The nurse can subjective
data by conducting an interview of Mrs. Walker to enquire about her own experienced about her symptoms.
Objective data would include conducting assessments such as pain assessment, cultural assessment,
psychosocial assessment and vital signs, abdominal and neurological assessment. Secondary sources of
data would include information collected from other sources which can comprise of past diagnostic deports
of Mrs. Walker or the nurse conducting evidence based research based on her symptoms and health
conditions (Leppin et al., 2015).......................................................................................................................

1b) In detail, discuss what the interview stage of a health assessment is. (100 words)
The stage of conducting an interview in a health assessment is essential for the purpose of obtaining
essential information about the medical history of the client and hence, is a subjective form of data
collection. For the conductance of a nursing assessment interview, it is of utmost importance for the nurse
to engage in usage of open ended, subjective questions which requires a more detailed response outlining
the patient’s experiences. A typical interview conducted by the nurse for the purpose of assessment and
medical history would include questions on the existing health condition and the associated symptoms and
complaints, the nature, severity and onset of symptoms leading to nursing classification of the same as
acute or chronic, the existing nursing and treatment plan chosen for the patient, details of family and social
history and lastly, the details of how the patient is perceiving symptoms. The nurse may also conduct the
interview with the family of the patient is unable to answer for the purpose of conducting family centred care
